Youichi is a very serious, stoic young man with a girlfriend and a regular sex life. However, he has never experienced sexual self-gratification.

Recently, he's become aware of a book called "Masturbation" at the library he works at—an educated discourse into the history of the sin of Onan and related practices. Finding himself increasingly intrigued by the concepts within, he begins to conduct a series of experiments... Join him as he embarks into a whole new world!

I'm a little surprised that "Self" has no reviews. This isn't the manga of the century, but it touches upon some themes that, to my mind at least, mark it as unique.

Youichi is a twenty-something man with complete sangfroid. Nothing really disturbs his inner balance. His composure remains calm, too, into the bedroom. Youchi, kind and attractive, has never had a problem with finding girls willing to sleep with him. And yet he comes to believe that whatever pleasure he may receive from the encounter, it is dwarfed by the pleasure of the girl. He believes, in short, that sex is for women.
